What happens after booking a treatment?

Depending on how you booked your treatment you will receive verbal or email confirmation detailing the pest control service booked. This will include information on how to cancel the visit and the implications of missing an appointment.

The Council aims to carry out all Pest Control Visits within 2 working days and you will be telephoned to arrange a suitable date to visit.

The Council's Pest Control Officer will visit between 9.00am and 16.00pm Monday to Friday. (Arrangements to visit will be made for AM or PM)

What is covered in the price for different pest types?

Rats/Mice
The charge covers up to 3 visits to deal with the current problem. If more than 3 visits are required a further payment will need to be made.

On the final visit any remaining poison will be removed in accordance with the rodenticide stewardship scheme to protect wildlife and non-target species.

If, however, a visit for wasps has been paid for and subsequently turns out to be bees advice will be given. The customer may be entitled to a 50% refund of the fee; this is to cover the call out cost and advice. Customers will be made aware of this at the time of booking.
